Old Timey Psycho-Grass from North Georgia
Andrea Colburn and Mud Moseley sound like a panther screaming in the middle of the night, like a band of gypsies at a tea party, like a carefully curated hullabaloo held in a Wild West funeral home. Like Doc Watson and the Cramps had a heinous love child.
Just as much influenced by Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, and Hank Williams Sr. as new Country acts such as Colter Wall and the Deslondes, Colburn & Moseley keep somewhat of a traditional country and blues feel all while giving it their own haunting, part Piedmont, part psychobilly spin.
The duo plan on bringing their own brand of bad to a town near you this year. Part Flat Duo Jet, part Bonnie and Clyde, this is not a performance that you will want to miss. Just maybe don’t stand in the front row.
Colburn was born and raised in NW Ohio. After a difficult move to St. Louis, MO at 13, Andrea turned to music and poetry. Highly inspired by Bobbie Gentry and Led Zeppelin, Andrea wanted to learn to play guitar, so her mother bought her one as a gift at 14 years old. After life led her to Georgia in 2012, and she met all the right people, she started writing songs influenced by traditional country artists like Waylon, Willie, and Hank Sr. as well as new alt-country acts such as Shovels & Rope and the Deslondes. Colburn keeps somewhat of a traditional country and blues feel all while giving it her own eerie, sometimes psychedelic, and usually violent, spin. There will be blood.
They say Mud Moseley was born somewhere near Winder, GA but this information could never be confirmed.
“…poke in the eye for Nashville Pop.”, and “Andrea Colburn has a strong country voice and is a very fine songwriter. The world needs CDs like this to counterbalance the tedious Nash-Pop confections…”
-Paul Riley (Country Music People UK) ★★★★★
“ In a time when studio trickery creates artificial perfection, this bare bones, sincere collection of tunes from the heart is as fresh as a sip of just-brewed moonshine.”
-James Kelly (Creative Loafing) ★★★★☆
